Star Citizen commercial shows off the Freelancer ship

Freelancer Ship Commerical

Surfing on the wave from the long awaited dogfighting module release, Roberts Space Industries has produced another commercial for one of their ship line-ups. The 2944 MISC Freelancer is a vessel used to transport goods between stations while also equipped to defend itself against those nasty pirates. It also comes in various models to suit any players needs.

Players have finally managed to get their hands on the pre-alpha game with the dogfighting module that released a few days ago, after much delay.

The 2944 MISC Freelancer is ship built for hauling cargo. Don’t be fooled however, as any fool-hardy pirates wanting their grubby hands on it will be in for a surprise. 

The Freelancer comes in three different models: the DUR is a long-duration explorer ship, MAX expands the cargo capacity to pack in even more goods, and finally the MIS is actually a missile boat designed for heavy combat.

What do you think of the Freelancer?

Makes me all tingly inside.

Every time I check out the star citizen site I am so confused with all the purchasing options that I just end up leaving. I am not sure if this is brilliant marketing or not.

I've seen phone bills that are easier to decipher than their psychology expert created store page.

Hey Mctittles, have you tried asking anyone for help?

Don't let the pricing dissuade you. All you really need is this, (https://robertsspaceindustries.com/store/315-aurora-mr) it will give you access to both Squadron 42 (the single player 50 mission branching story line prologue) and Star Citizen which is the full MMO. The package is only 30 bucks, much cheaper than you would pay for a normal AAA game, let alone 2 of them.

If you want to participate in the Beta process as well you can buy this package which is just 10 dollars more (https://robertsspaceindustries.com/store/316-aurora-mr). When the game goes into it's beta stage you will have full access to everything going on.

If you want to test Alpha, which is what is going on right now, you would just need to purchase the beta package and then just pay 5 bucks for each Alpha Module that launches, I think in total there's only going to be 5 or 6 of them and there will be a good bit of time between them as they develop each of them. Here is some current game play of the Alpha from LevelCap on Youtube. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMhKrA0MjH8&list=UUlMXf2oP5UiW_V4dwHxY0Mg)

Hope this helps. If you have any other questions, feel free to message on the RSI forums. Name there is Tank, take care.
